Red yeast rice has not yet been approved by the FDA, so it has

not been fully tested yet to determine all the side effects

possible. However, some side effects that have been reported are

stomach discomfort, heartburn, intestinal gas, and dizziness. More

serious side effects reported were liver damage, severe muscle pain

and muscle damage.
